I think the PROGRESSIVES NEED TO ORGANIZE and do a outreach campaign against Fox News. If all the progressives were able to organize we could bring down Murdoch and his Saudi Arabia money that is behind Fox by doing a all out information campaign about the lies and distortion of their news broadcasts and the Becks and Hannity lies and all the rest.
